    dd951....why are all of your "a" capitalized? I know the letter "a" is next to the CapsLock button, just can't seem to figure out how/why you do that????????

    I could write you a novel about how Red Dazes came to be... but I'll give you the Cambell's Soup version instead.

    I did a Resident Evil Forum based RP for a few years, my character of choice was named Rayne Elizabeth Dazes, or Rayne E. Dazes (Rainy Days...cause I am a dork and it was easy to remember) After the RP died, Rayne E. Dazes became my pin name for all my writing as well as my online alias. Would have stayed that way too until one of my friends asked me "Hey, you remember that RP we did. Rayne was an awesome character, you need to write a story about her." And thus A story was born. When I file my character creation sheets I do it by abbreviation of the characters names . e.g, someone named Brandon R. Baxter would be filed under BRB ((and no that was not intentional either)) So Rayne E. Dazes became... RED.

    Thus Red Dazes.... It has stuck around for enough years that I don't think it is going anywhere. ^_^ End Story

    That's cool Red.
    One question:
    What's the ferret's name?
    We have had three over the years as pets. Scooter, Tinker, and Kitty.
    Scooter was just Scooter.
    Tinker, was so named because our oldest daughter couldn't say Stinker. He was a mess.
    And Kitty was named by a neighbor's little 2 year old daughter. When we brought her home she could easily fit in the palm of your hand. The little girl petted her and said "Nice kitty"...
    Kitty was a little B.... well she was always grumpy.

    We have 4 ferrets....and a cat.
    Kodo, who is Penguin's avatar, was named when we got him...didn't have a lot of choice on that one ^_^

    Dr. Watson, who was my avatar up until about 5 seconds ago, I named thus because...well, while smart, isn't quite a Sherlock.

    Pandora, my little love, is named such because when we got her and brought her home in the box, the cat thought it would be great fun to stick her paw into it...and got bitten, and Penguin said "That's what you get for messing with a Pandora's box kitten." and it stuck.

    Bellatrix, the head of the house, was named "Silver Bell" when we got her from the shelter...and it made me want to puke... so we started calling her Bella...which morphed into Bellatrix...and it has just kind of become her name.

    And Artemis the cat is named such in jest... because even though she is the clawless wonder((we adopted her as such)) she thinks she is the world's best hunter.

    ^_^ I suppose I'll have to play pet owner sometime and put pictures up for all to see.

    Awesome reasons for names, I threw my name into a steam punk generator and it came out to be Raymond Langstaff, I actually like it and wish I had used that instead. In any case, my screen name is from the Manga and Anime titled GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka. He used to be a street punk, but then he cleaned himself up. I liked the idea so I stuck with it.

    Hell, now I feel boring just using my first and last name squished together. At least this way I can remember my name after smoking a particularly high N bowl!

    I normally use more creative names online, examples: Mabius, Stevedave or Omoi. Wanted something more personal for this forum since I thought I would be sharing more real life things here so I chose something with my real name. Liked the sound of Greggors, so it stuck lol.

    I'm not creative. bhp = Browning Hi-Power. The first handgun my father ever trained me on. I was 7 years old. Drew = I'm Drew.
    24 years later, I still shoot that Hi-Power.

    Mines just my middle name. Not much but I guess I am kinda proud of it.
    It's been almost every generation of my family since the 1500's and the Isle of Skye. More recently it was used to name a county in Texas,..my great great grand-uncle was Collin McKinney of McKinney Tx.

    My first job after leaving the Marine Corps was as a test engineer at an aerospace company. Part of the job was to write and perform test procedures - but only the union techs could actually touch the equipment. So when I went out to the equipment with my first procedure and test team, I gave them my very best impression of a first lieutenant, telling them all about how I expected superior performance and no dilly dallying about from them.

    When I got all done talking, the techs sort of mumbled to themselves for a moment, then the oldest technician stepped forward and thanked me for my speech. He said they had all been wondering what the were going to call me, and had decided that I would be known as Dilly Dally Dan. The moniker has stuck with me for over 30 years.

    The thing that brought me back to my pipes is that one of my "bucket list" dreams was to sit on a scrub island all alone while enjoying a bowl of tobacco. After a 30 year hiatus from my pipes, at 60, it all came true.

    My screen name is straight forward my first name (there is a hell of a story behind that, and no I am not Russian) and the year of my birth.

    My screen name came from the tendency for me to disappear to the computer room for lenghty periods of time. My wife would often find me "resting my eyes" from too much screen staring. Hence the joke became Jack Clark's Naps, jcsnaps. The avatar are some of my favorite things nice freehand Danish pipes, and nice Danish pastry.

    I knew a woman that used the screen name Midnitecowgirl which gave some inspiration, I have worked for Ryder Truck Rental since 82 and then remembered hearing the song by the Allman Bros Midniteryder. I have also had a vanity plate Ezrydr which was pretty cool
